The things to fear in life

Repost on my wordpress what I had postedĀ on Facebook back in 21 December 2014, when I woke up in the middle of the night to breastfeed Olive:

BecauseĀ Olive needs a Mr. Kobayashi in her life, and some haiku.

So here it is, my very first haiku dedicated to my daughter:

Whimpers in the dark
Under the orange moonlight
Beckons her closer

Also, mama wants you to know that…

“Having eyes, but not seeing beauty; having ears, but not hearing music; having minds, but not perceiving truth; having hearts that are never moved and therefore never set on fire. These are the things to fear.”
